I make this often. I never add the chilies, my husband wouldn't like it that way. In the summer, when we have fresh tomatoes I'll slice up some and toss them in with the garlic and oil. This is also good with some fresh arugula or spinach tossed in at the last moment.

I grew up in an Italian household and we called this Greasy Spaghetti growing up. I haven't had it since my Nana died, thanks for reminding me of this. Added a 1/4 cup Parm at step 10. Was wonderful. Thanks again.

I left out the breadcrumbs on this one but other than that made as directed and it was so simple to prepare. I only used a sprinkling of chili peppers, as we don't like anything too hot. Using a ladle full of pasta water did help with keeping the pasta nice and moist along with the oil. We loved this and will use again. Next time I may add in some zucchini, yellow squash, green and red peppers and string beans for a veggie dish.

Outstanding. For a lower calorie option, try eliminating the bread crumbs altogether, and using 3/4 pound of spaghetti. We also substituted sun dried tomatoes for the chilies. This fed 5 of us, even though we didn't have a side dish. Wonderful flavor, and not dry at all. You can also put a tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese on top of each serving, but the recipe is so flavorful the Parmesan really isn't needed. Even with Parmesan cheese, a serving of 1 1/2 cup of cooked and prepared spaghetti comes out to less than 400 calories per person.

Well, this recipe looked really good, but the actual dish doesn't measure up. It was too dry and didn't have any flavor. My husband and I tried to think of ways to make it more to our liking, but without completely changing the recipe, we couldn't come up with anything. Definitely won't make again.

Fantastic recipe. It's quick and easy, and I had most of the ingredients in my kitchen, except for the garlic, which I substituted half an onion for. Since I used too little pasta, there were a bit too many breadcrumbs, but it was still good nonetheless.

haven't made it yet, but it's just the recipe i've been looking for. Ladling pasta water, brilliant.
